School

Won't you believe it
It's just my luck

No recess

Won't you believe it
It's just my luck

(x3)
No recess

(x8)
You're in that school again

(x7)
No recess

Drain You


One baby to another says - 
I'm lucky to have met you 
I don't care what you think 
Unless it is about me 
It is now my duty to completely drain you 
A travel through a tube 
And end up in your infection 

Chew your meat for you 
Pass it back and forth 
In a passionate kiss 
From my mouth to yours 
I like you 

With eyes so dialated, 
I've become your pupil 
You've taught me everything 
Without a poison apple 
The water is so yellow, I'm a healthy student 
Indebted and so grateful - 
Vacuum out the fluids 

Chew your meat for you 
Pass it back and forth 
In a passionate kiss 
From my mouth to yours 
I like you

One baby to another says -
I'm lucky to have met you 
I don't care what you think 
Unless it is about me 
It is now my duty to completely drain you 
A travel through a tube 
And end up in your infection 

Chew your meat for you 
Pass it back and forth 
In a passionate kiss 
From my mouth to yours 
Sloppy lips to lips 
You're my vitamins 
I'm like you 

Aneurysm


Come on over and do the twist
Overdo it and have a fit
Love you so much it makes me sick
Come on over and do the twist

Beat me outta me (x8)

Come on over and do the twist
Overdo it and have a fit
Love you so much it makes me sick
Come on over and shoot the shit

Beat me outta me (x8)

She keeps it pumpin' straight to my heart (x8)

Smells Like Teen Spirit

Load up on guns and bring your friends 
It's fun to lose and to pretend 
She's over bored and self assured 
Oh no, I know a dirty word 

Hello, hello, hello, how low? (x3) 
Hello, hello, hello! 

With the lights out, it's less dangerous 
Here we are now, entertain us 
I feel stupid and contagious 
Here we are now, entertain us 
A mulatto 
An albino 
A mosquito 
My libido 
Yay!
Hey (x2) 

I'm worse at what I do best 
And for this gift I feel blessed 
Our little tribe has always been 
And always will until the end 

Hello, hello, hello, how low? (x3) 
Hello, hello, hello! 

With the lights out, it's less dangerous 
Here we are now, entertain us 
I feel stupid and contagious 
Here we are now, entertain us 
A mulatto 
An albino 
A mosquito 
My Libido 
Yay! 
Hey (x2)

And I forget just why I taste 
Oh yeah, I guess it makes me smile 
I found it hard, it was hard to find 
Oh well, whatever, nevermind 

Hello, hello, hello, how low? (x3) 
Hello, hello, hello! 

With the lights out, it's less dangerous 
Here we are now, entertain us 
I feel stupid and contagious 
Here we are now, entertain us 
A mulatto 
An albino 
A mosquito 
My libido 

A denial !! (x9)

Been a son


- One, Two, Three, Four!

She should have stayed away from friends
She should have had more time to spend
She should have died when she was born
She should have worn the crown of thorns
She should have - been a son
She should have - been a son
She should have - been a son
She should have - been a son

She should have stood out in the crowd
She should have made her mother proud
She should have fallen on her stance
She should have had another chance

(x2)
She should have - been a son
She should have - been a son
She should have - been a son
She should have - been a son

She should have stayed away from friends
She should have had more time to spend
She should have died when she was born
She should have worn the crown of thorns
She should have - been a son
She should have - been a son
She should have - been a son
She should have - been a son

Lithium

I'm so happy 'cause today 
I've found my friends ... 
They're in my head 
I'm so ugly, but that's okay, 'cause so are you ... 
We've broken our mirrors 
Sunday morning is everyday for all I care ... 
And I'm not scared 
Light my candles, in a daze 
'Cause I've found god 

Hey, hey hey (x6) 

I'm so happy 'cause today 
I shaved my head ... 
And I'm not sad 
And just maybe I'm to blame for all I've heard ... 
But I'm not sure 
I'm so excited, I can't wait to meet you there ... 
But I don't care 
I'm so horny, but that's okay ... 
My will is good 

Hey, hey hey (x6) 

I like it - I'm not gonna crack 
I miss you - I'm not gonna crack 
I love you - I'm not gonna crack 
I love you - I'm not gonna crack 
I like it - I'm not gonna crack 
I miss you - I'm not gonna crack 
I love you - I'm not gonna crack 
I killed you - I'm not gonna crack 

I'm so happy 'cause today

And I'm not scared 
Light my candles in a daze ...

Sliver


Mom and dad went to a show
They dropped me off at Grandpa Joe's
I kicked and screamed, said please, don't go

Grandma take me home (x7)
Wanna be alone

Had to eat my dinner there
Mashed potatos and stuff like that
I couldn't chew my meats too good

Never take me home (x7)
Wanna be alone

She said, well, don't you start your crying
Go outside and ride your bike
Thats what I did, I killed my toad

Never take me home (x7)
Wanna be alone

After dinner, I had ice cream
I fell asleep, and watched TV
I woke up in my mother's arms (Alt: I woke up ill in my mother's arms)

Never take me home (x14)
I wanna be alone

Spank Thru


This song is for the lovers out there (Alt: The summer was melting)
And all the lights on the trees
All the flowers have gingivitis
And the birds fly happily

We're together once again my love
I need you back, oh baby baby

I can't explain just why we lost it from the start
Living without you girl, you only break my heart ... Yeah!

I can feel it, I can hold it, I can pin it, shape it, mold it, 
I can cut it, I can taste it, spank it
Beat it while you ... Ah, wait here

I've been looking for days now (Alt: I've been looking for day glow)
Always hearing the same ol'
City boy won't you spank thru?
I can make you do things you won't think you ever could (Alt: I can make it do things you never think it ever do)

I can feel it, I can hold it, pin it, shape it, mold it, 
We can cut it, We can taste it, spank it
Beat it 'till you ... Ah, wait here

I've been looking for days now (Alt: I've been looking for day glow)
Always hearing the same ol'
City boy won't you spank thru?
I can make you do things you won't think you ever could (Alt: I can make it do things you never think it ever do)

I've been looking for days now
Always hearing the same ol'
City boy won't you spank thru?
I can make you do things you won't think you ever could 
You won't think you ever could 

Scentless Apprentice


Like most babies smell like butter
His smell smelled like no other
He was born scentless and senseless
He was born a scentless apprentice

Go away - get away, get a-way

Every wet nurse refused to feed him
Electrolytes smell like semen
I promise not to sell your perfumed secrets
There are countless formulas for pressing flowers

Go away - get away, get a-way

I lie in the soll and fertilize mushrooms
Leaking out gas fumes are made into perfume
You can't fire me because I quit!
Throw me in the fire and I won't throw a fit

Go away - get away, get away, get away, get away, get away, get away, get a-way

Heart-Shaped Box


She eyes me like a pisces when I am weak
I've been locked inside your Heart-Shaped box for a week
I've been drawn into your magnet tar-pit trap
I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn back

Hey! Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey! Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey! Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Your advice

Meat-eating orchids forgive no one just yet
Cut myself on angel's hair and baby's breath
Broken hymen of your highness I'm left black
Throw down your umbilical noose so I can climb right back

Hey! Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey! Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey! Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Your advice

She eyes me like a pisces when I am weak
I've been locked inside your Heart-Shaped box for weeks
I've been drawn into your magnet tar-pit trap
I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn back

Hey! Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey! Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey! Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice

Your advice (x3)

Milk It


I am my own parasite
I don't need a host to live
We feed off of each other
We can share our endorphins

Doll steak!
Test meat!

Look on the bright side is suicide
Lost eyesight I'm on your side
Angel left wing, right wing, broken wing
Lack of iron and/or sleeping

I own my own pet virus
I get to pet and name her
Her milk is my shit
My shit it is her milk

Doll steak!
Test meat!

Look on the bright side is suicide
Lost eyesight I'm on your side
Angel left wing, right wing, broken wing
Lack of iron and/or sleeping

Doll steak!
Test meat!

Look on the bright side is suicide
Lost eyesight I'm on your side
Angel left wing, right wing, broken wing
Lack of iron and/or sleeping

Protector of the kennel
Ecto-plasma, Ecto-skeletal
Obituary every birthday
Your scent is still here in my place of recovery!

Negative Creep


This is out of our reach
Out of our reach (x2)
And it's gone

This is getting to be 
Getting to be (x2)
A drone

Negative creep (x3)
And I'm stoned!

Negative creep (x3)
And I'm ...

Daddy's little girl ain't a girl no more (x4)

Out of our reach (x3)
And it's gone

Getting to be (x3)
A drone

Negative creep (x3)
And I'm stoned!

Negative creep (x3)
And I'm ... 

Daddy's little girl ain't a girl no more (x4)

Daddy's little girl ain't a girl no more (x8)

Polly


Polly wants a cracker 
I think I should get off her first 
I think she wants some water 
To put out the blow torch 

It isn't me 
We have some seed 
Let me clip
Your dirty wings
Let me take a ride
Don't cut yourself
I want some help
To please myself
I've got some rope
You have been told
I promise you
I have been true
Let me take a ride 
Don't cut yourself 
I want some help 
To please myself 

Polly wants a cracker 
Maybe she would like some food 
She asks me to untie her 
A chase would be nice for a few 

It isn't me 
We have some seed 
Let me clip 
Your dirty wings 
Let me take a ride 
Don't cut yourself 
I want some help 
To please myself 
I've got some rope 
You have been told 
I promise you 
I have been true 
Let me take a ride 
Don't cut yourself 
I want some help 
To please myself 

Polly said 

Polly says her back hurts 
She's just as bored as me 
She caught me off my guard 
It amazes me, the will of instinct 

It isn't me 
We have some seed 
Let me clip 
Your dirty wings 
Let me take a ride 
Don't cut yourself 
I want some help 
To please myself 
I've got some rope 
You have been told 
I promise you 
I have been true 
Want me take a ride 
Don't cut yourself 
I want some help 
To please myself 

Breed

I don't care (x2)
Care, care, care, care if I'm old 
I don't mind (x3)
Mind, mind, don't have a mind 
Get away (x2) 
Away, away, away, away from your home 
I don't mind (x2)
Mind, mind, mind ...

Even if you have 
Even if you need 
I don't even care
We could have a tree
We could plant a house
We could build a tree
I don't even care 
We could have a tree
She said (x8)

Get away (x2) 
Away, away,  away from your home 
I don't mind (x3)
Mind, mind, don't have a mind 
Get away (x2) 
Away, away, away, away from your home 
I don't mind (x2)
Mind, mind, mind ...

Even if you have 
Even if you need 
I don't even care
We could have a tree
We could plant a house
We could build a tree
I don't even care 
We could build a tree
She said (x8)

Even if you have 
Even if you need 

I don't even care
We could have a tree
We could plant a house
We could build a tree
I don't even care 
We could have all three
She said (x12)

Tourette's - The Eagle Has Landed


- Hey bootleggers!
  So, this is a new song and we don't really feel like .. 
  actually going through the trouble of putting it out ourselves, so ...
- This song is called "The Eagle has Landed" !
  Yeah, and its for all of you bootleggers to go ahead and go ! 

Try to find something fast, in my eyes
Oh no, that's ok, phone home
Everthing tastes the same, in my eyes
Every day, every taste, in my eyes

Hey! (x3)

Every time it's in his chin, in my eyes
Everything Tennesees, phone home
Bring it down, at the town, in my eyes
Bring it in, set it's in, in my eyes

Hey! (x3)

Try it's sound, something found, it ain't us
Round down, at the town, go home
Round down, something in, mean us
Every taste, something fake, gross

Hey! (x3)

Take ...
Mean heart ...
Mean hearts ...(x3)

Blew

- Thank you for your patience!

If you wouldn't mind I would like to blew
If you wouldn't care I would like to blew
If you wouldn't mind I would like to leave
If you wouldn't care I would like to breathe

Is there another reason for your stain
Could you believe who we knew was stress or strain?
Here is another word that rhymes with shame

If you wouldn't mind I would like to blew
If you wouldn't care I would like to blew
If you wouldn't mind I would like to leave
If you wouldn't care I would like to breathe

(x2)
Is there another reason for your stain

You could do anything
